2" Swing-Away Straight Binder
Binder 2″ With Swing Bracket automatically guides and folds facing (binding) tape into place over the edge of fabric as you sew. Easily finish the edges of enclosures, awnings, dodgers, biminis, sails, and more with fabric tape or facing and this 2″ Swing Away Binder. The Swing Bracket binder does not need to be removed after use, just swing it out of the way.
This high quality binder is made in Japan exclusively for Sailrite. Facing tape feeds smoothly and folds evenly, even at sewn splices. Sailrite Swing Bracket binders feature a special stop screw, which prevents the binder from jumping over its frame and being pulled into the needle when sewing heavy items. This "stop" is a must when using a powerful walking foot sewing machine.
The 2-inch Swing Away Binder works great with any 2-inch tape or facing including: Sunbrella facing, Stamoid facing, webbing, Dacron sail tape, and custom cut fabric tapes.
Use the 2-inch binder to install Dacron sail tape on sail edges with ease. The gate of the binder is wide enough that a leech line can even be fed into the edge tape during sewing. This binder can also be used to attach flat 2-inch webbing for edging strong and thick enough to hold marine fasteners and grommets.
Another great application for the 2-inch binder is making custom piping. Install a left roping zipper foot on your sewing machine and feed 5/32″ piping cord into the center of the binder (at the fold) as it feeds and sews. Do this using only the 2-inch wide tape and the piping cord. The tape is not being attached to another piece of fabric when being used to create piping (welt). When the required length of piping has been sewn, cut the tail down so that it is only about 3/8″ wide. If the tail or flange is left too wide, bending the piping at cushion corners will be too difficult.
Screws for attaching the binder to a sewing machine are included. This binder attachment is for home and commercial use. Most sewing machines have the appropriate size holes in the machine head for installation.
